I'm really new to the online marketing game, so please excuse my next newbie question. It would be a great help if someone would give me a top 10 list of things that I can do right now to drive traffic to my website?

There seems to be so much information on this site that I am finding it hard to put all this information to good use... What would be a good mix of strategies that the newbie could use? For example back linking, social media etc

Thank you in advance to anyone that can help me.

  • Cedricjbc,

    Start by targeting keywords that are relevant to what he is selling.

    You will want to include these keywords in the content on your website as well as the architecture of the website (meta tags, alt tags, and titles). Choose keywords that are important to the product or service you are marketing and build a page around each one. There are certain characteristics as to how you do this such as keyword density in website copy and the number of relevant keywords you should include in meta tags.

    The tasks mentioned above are known as internal or onsite SEO and are related to website architecture that you have direct control over. Another aspect is offsite SEO which can include creation of external web properties that contain target keywords (sites like wikis, free business listings, Google Places, Bing business listings etc.), article marketing and syndication, creation and optimization of video, document sharing, link building and a number of other tactics.

    It would also be wise to follow industry leaders in SEO to help guide you to good information on the subject. Keep up to date on industry news by reading the blogs and following the social media accounts of industry leaders. SEOMoz is a good one along with @randfish – Rand Fishkin the organization’s founder. Another good resource is and you could follow @DannySullivan – Danny Sullivan, the website’s Editor. Matt Cutts -- @mattcutts who is head of the webspam team at Google is another great resource.

    Use social media to promote the site as well. Open accounts on twitter, Google Plus, and any others that may be relevant. Share content on a weekly basis. A blog is another great opportunity to drive traffic to the site.

      Terry Kyle: Thanks for your question; my niche is in Health and Wellness. Specifically, I have been charged with managing the content and online marketing for a clients site and although I have relative proficiency in the social media side of the equation, I need to find ways to drive more targeted traffic to their website. I am also using what I learn in this endeavor to sell my own e-book when it is complete. Any help would be appreciated.

    If you are looking for traffic then you can go with social media optimization and local website directories, you can get ample amount of traffic by using these techniques. According to me google+ and Facebook plays a vital role in ranking and you can get traffic from organic listing as well. Try to get as many followers/like as you can on Facebook and google so you can spread your message to a wider audience. You can post some offers which are specially built for your online users. If you are targeting local services then a business listing on Google and Yelp can help a much in generating traffic hence leads.
